  • Place all ingredients in a high-powered blender, starting with ½ cup milk. Blend until smooth and creamy, adding more milk as needed to get the desired thickness.



  • Honey – If you like a sweeter tasting smoothie feel free to add honey, maple syrup, stevia or monkfruit, to taste. 
  • Dairy-free – You can use non-dairy yogurt or plant-based protein to make this smoothie dairy-free.
  • Mix-ins – This is a great recipe to build off of so if you're feeling creative go ahead and experiment with other ingredients!
